One Thousand Northern Romantic Citrus

Michael Joaquin Grey at Thingvellir together with children from Landakot School.

On Friday January 15th, Michael Joaquin Grey‘s pedagogy performance One Thousand Northern Romantic Citrus took place at Thingvellir. With the assistance of children from Landakot School in Reykjavík, the artist took one citrus tree to Thingvellir to talk about that what is native to Iceland may change radically enough so that citrus may someday grow and oranges will be indigenous to Iceland and the North.

The performance took place in conjunction with the exhibiton Back to the Sandbox – Art and Radical Pedagogy that opened at Hafnarhús on Friday January 15th.
